Franklin Co., TN

Franklin County, TN


Franklin County was created on December 3, 1807 from Warren and Bedford Counties and named for Benjamin Franklin. During the next several decades, the size of the county was reduced as the neighboring counties of Coffee, Moore, and Grundy were formed from it. One of the most notable early settlers was frontiersman Davy Crockett, who came about 1812 but is not thought to have remained long.

Modern Day Adjacent Counties

Franklin County is bordered by Coffee, Grundy, Lincoln, Marion and Moore counties in addition to Jackson and Madison counties in Alabama.
